ASSEMBLE THE BAR RACK
The rack that holds the bar is made out of 2x4s glued and screwed together.
ASSEMBLE THE BENCH
The structure for the bench is made out of 2x4s glued and screwed together.
REINFORCE AND ADD FOAM
We screwed the bench structure to the rack and then added two additional pieces of 2x4s to reinforce the connection. A piece of 3/4” thick plywood 9.5” by 48” was screwed to the bench structure before a piece of foam was glued to the plywood.
PAINT AND COVER
We painted the wood with an exterior-grade paint and covered the foam with some marine grade fabric. The fabric was stapled to the underside of the piece of plywood.
